Interview day

Please keep in mind that this is just a sample schedule, provided to give you an idea of what the day might include. The activities, times and locations on your confirmed schedule may be different.

The evening before your interview (casual attire):


A van will pick you up at the front of the Courtyard Marriot. On the way to dinner, we will make a stop at UH Rainbow Center for Women & Children, the site of our primary care clinic, for a brief tour. Following the tour, applicants will then be brought to a casual dinner at one of our residents’ homes. At dinner, you will have an opportunity to meet and chat with several of our current residents.

Interview Day Schedule (business attire):

7:15 a.m. / Meet in the University Hospitals Lerner Tower Lobby

The main entrance to University Hospitals is located on UH Drive. If you are driving, park in the UH Visitors Garage, which is also located on UH Drive, off of Euclid Ave. The garage will be on your right and the main entrance to the hospital will be straight ahead. You will be given a parking pass when you leave so parking will be free.
